Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Your medical history and treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment will be required to provide treatment on a scheduled day. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- Your health card and a list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, anticoagulant therapy, bone medication, sleeping pills etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
